In re Marriage of Mendoza & CuellarAnnotate this Case
Noemi Mendoza appealed after a trial court denied her request to make a permanent spousal support order retroactive to the filing date of her petition for marriage dissolution. The trial court based its denial on Mendoza’s failure to request temporary spousal support. The Court of Appeal agreed such failure was fatal to Mendoza’s retroactivity request. The Court, therefore, affirmed the judgment.
